Just signed w my tribe, I hope you're right

I hope so too!

Would be nice to see a bounceback but Progressive isn't exactly power hitter friendly. Only problem with drafting him is if he's not hitting those homeruns you don't get much of anything from him. Still can't be much worse than majority of last year.

he is who he is

in a mixed 5x5 or H2H league, he's undraftable and you pick him up when he's hitting and drop him when he goes 0/21 with 11 Ks

in an AL only league, he's cheap power

in an OBP league, he has sneaky late round value

Where is he hitting in the lineup this season?

If he could get his average up to .250-.260 he'd be nice value with 3B eligibility.

He's been a full time player for 5 years and he's 29 years old. He is what he is.

2008 - .239

2009 - .260

2010 - .198

2011 - .221

2012 - .221

It's possible he could hit .260 again but I doubt it.

we go through this every year.

1) get him cheap

2) put in bench

3) when he starts hitting HRs, put him in

4) when he cools down, bench him

I wouldn't knock him for playing in Progressive Field. Doesn't Reynolds hit moon shots?

It's interesting how strong a spring he's had, so he's caught my attention, but I'd hate to rely on him anywhere...

I dont know how productive he will be if he is in the #6 spot in the batting order. Like someone prior said...ride him when he's hot but otherwise he's a bench player at best. Strikes out way too much and has a horrible BA and OBP.

I think this year is a bounce back for the guy. 32HR 88 RBI.

29HR to go..come on buddy

Reynolds was one of the most undervalued guys on draft day, especially with the complete lack of depth in the 3B field this year.

As long as the Indians are patient with him, he will hit 40 bombs this year.

Typical Reynolds hot streak. Don't let the fact that it's occurring in week 1 make you think he's going to be any different this year than last. I own him in 1 league...but I know what I'm dealing with here. Everybody that's furiously adding him at this point will be dropping him in 3 weeks more than likely.

Great source of power to have as a backup. When he hits his homers they usually come in a short time span.

Partially true, but with just about every decent 3B hurt right now, he suddenly becomes very valuable.

30+ bombs is 30+ bombs, no matter how you slice it. He wont give you BA or a ton of steals but will give you the counting numbers in every other important power stat in fantasy.

30 bombs is great....but when combined with a .200 BA and almost no steals, it's not nearly as great. If you own any other guy projected to hit sub-.250, it's probably a bad idea to roster Reynolds as anything other than a bench piece.

Is he streaky or is this sustainable, within reason?

One of the streakiest hitters in the game. When hes on he hits them at will. When hes off he could hit a barn and his swings will make you barf.

Aside from last year, what would make it not sustainable?

The guy does not hit for average, but let's look at the years prior to last year

2012:23

2011: 37

2010: 32

2009: 44

2008: 28

I'm not seeing the problem.

It's not a problem...if you play in leagues that don't count AVG. If you do, he's a serious liability.
